Help Eager Weavers In A Tiny UP Village By Buying Their Gorgeous Handlooms

Rene posted on 12 May

Shortcut

Baragaon Weaves is a well-meaning venture that currently works with 10 weaver families in UP’s Baragaon village. The team works closely with the artisans in upholding the age-old tradition of handloom weaving by assisting them with designs and marketing. The best bit: It brings the weavers dignity of labour and promises a fair price for their craft.

All's Fair In Love & Handloom

You’ll be surprised at how badly the small-time weavers working in obscure villages are hit by rampant mechanisation. Their hand-made looms are time-consuming and thanks to the middlemen, fair remuneration often fails to trickle down to the artisan working at the grassroots. This is exactly why if you are a conscious buyer and a lover of all things sustainable, you’ll dig these saris, dupattas, stoles and kurtas.

We’re crushing on these simple, feel-good products that are as practical as they are good-looking. Plus, the pricing is fair on both sides: The weaver gets what he/she deserves and the benefit of a no-middleman-fee translates into a moderately priced product for the end buyer. This probably explains why their nook at Dastkar is often full of women admiring their fabric {it’s soft as angel wings, seriously!}.

So, We're Saying...

Their standalone store in Green Park market opened on Monday and we’re itching to make a trip. If you find us, just wave out your handloom buy and we’ll know it’s you.

P.S. The Neemrana Shop in Khan Market and sites like Jaypore, itokri and Limeroad also stock up some of their stuff.
